COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Saison-Brett, based on our very popular Tank 7, is assertively dry hopped, then bottle conditioned with various yeasts, including Brettanomyces, a wild strain that imparts a distinctive earthy quality. Though this farmhouse ale was given three months of bottle age prior to release, further cellaring will continue to enhance the “Brett” character, if that’s what you’re after.

9/29/09 notes: GABF Friday session, sampled at least four times. Top Saison at the festival, followed closely by Saison Rue by the Bruery. This beer made me stand up and say, “Holy Shit, this is good!”. Seriously, my buddies can attest. Nose is simultaneously loaded with horseblanket funk and perfumy hops. Palate is medium, extremely smooth, yet with a crisp, snappy finish. Flavors are basically barnyard upfront, layered- not dominated – by a lemon pith lemon tart note that I cannot fully explain. Definitely a bit of sourness and earthiness thrown in there. All of this swirls so wonderfully on the palate, just the way a good Saison should in my opinion. I would LOVE to have a bottle of this to sip on!

This corked and caged bottled brew from a rating party poured a head of all foam finely sized white colored bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a transparent softly carbonated yellow colored body. The aroma was floral malty banana and mild fruit. The smooth mouth feel was weakly tingly at the start mediumly tingly at the finish. The flavor contained notes of soft hops mild malt and mild fruit. A decent one that I would consider buying again.

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2009 A Mes rate: bottle at the ever brilliant Chris O’s Pre GBBF Extravaganza.
Hazy yellow with a big white head. It quite literally exploded when opened. Lots of lemon and fruity notes, good bretty spicy funk and a really nice dry saison underneath. All the ingredients are there but for some reason it just doesn’t really excite me. Original score - 3.4

Re-rate on Christmas Day at my mums with Sim and our Weasel. Massive thanks to Joe for this. Well, what a difference. This is absolutely superb. Massive brett and barnyard on the nose. Flavour of a really tasty saison with a load of brett. Big Orval like finish. Almost Champagne like yeasty notes. Excellent finish full stop. Carbonation is perfect and washes its way through the palate in an amazing fashion giving such a glorious clean mouthfeel. Forget champagne beers, this one does the trick soooo much better. Late white wine grapes rounds things off in outstandng fashion. This is really really good. Joe, thank you, thank you, thank you. I owe you one for sure.

Cloudy yellow with a big white head. Funky aroma with spices and fruit on top of the brett. Dry, funky and spicy flavour

Beardface (1517) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Awesome commercial description, George Brett was a pimp! 750 ml bottle thanks to Leems. Poured out a moderate mishmash of orange and yellow with a thick white head. Aroma of yeast, mild horseblanket, pepper and some lemon. Flavor was peppery with hints of lemon, hay and even some light licorice. This was a very interesting beer, would definitely drink again.

Goodgrief (1790) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - SEP 10, 2009
Straw color, head was out of control on pour. Wonderful aroma, fruity and funky. The flavor, though, wasn’t very good. The flavor reminded me of chloriseptic, and chloriseptic isn’t very tasty. Really carbonated. Glad this was shared with several buddies and I didn’t have to drink much of this.

Bottle #08720 of 11925:
Hazy golden coloured body with a very very thick tan head that actually shows nicely over the beer - it’s all microfoam. Aroma of pepper, hay, yeast, wheat, candy and even a bit of lavendar. Medium-bodied; Assertive fennel and anise flavours tucked in with wild yeast, cloves, spice and a good maltiness. Aftertaste shows a lot of spicey character with some alcohol very noticeable and a good balance of sweetness and spices. Overall, a good and potent saison - perhaps a bit too spicey for me, but good characteristics are noticeable in this one! I sampled this 75 cL bottle purchased earlier today at Broadway Wine Merchants in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma on 31-August-2009.

750ml Bottle #08576...From BFC. Thanks Jake. Nice pop off the cork.. Monster fluffy head that took a minute to settle. Straw/Orange color. Good aroma of yeast, lemon, spices, light grass, with a slight tartness to it. Nice spicey taste, a little lemon and a slight tartness that isnt overdone at all. Light in texture, easy drinking. Overall a solid saison, thanks Jake for the hook-up!
